Chell Bowls in the Winning Valve/Nerdist Mashup Contest Entry


Congratulations are in order for Sadierose Schwarzmiller. She’s the artist behind the awesome Valve/Nerdist mashup art you see here that won the Mashup Contest for a trip to the DICE conference in Las Vegas. Chell and Gordon Freeman couldn’t catch a break, apparently, when they did Chris Hardwick’s All-Star┬áCelebrity Bowling.

After going through over 70 entries, the field was narrowed to ten finalists, which you can see on the Nerdist/Valve Mashup Pinterest board. An honorable mention goes to Jeffrey Albert’s entry, a Chrome extension that turns into a Steam doppleganger.

Stay tuned to and the Nerdist Channel for more from the DICE conference and awards in Las Vegas.

    “This is not Aperture, Chell. There are rules.”

  3. MonkeyRevenge, your Chrome extension was certainly outside the box. That’s a pretty slick idea!

    I love all the comradery between companies and groups in this culture space. It’s some of my very favorite moments when I see mutual appreciation among different leaders of industries I love and adore. The interviews with Gabe and this contest are examples of that.

    That comic sure takes the cake (pun unregretably intended)!
    Excellent job, Sadierose, and a big congrats! It reminds me of one of Valve’s own comics!
    And a whole Chrome extention!?! Dang, that’s awesome, Jeffery!
    Also, thank you Nerdist for putting me in with the finalists! I didn’t even expect to get that far! So glad you liked it!

    Wow what an awesome idea Sadierose! It’s one of those when I think to myself “why didn’t I think of that!” Very clever and fantastically drawn piece. Wish I thought of this magnitude when I did my piece. Have fun in Vegas!!!

  6. Thanks, as Im not much of an artist but a decent developer I tried thinking outside the box on this one! I was really hoping to go and just meant all the other developers there because I love chatting with fellow devs. I am going to update my extension more to fix some of the problems with it. and make it more efficient. I spent a long time on it, and want to make it better. I didn’t want to update it until after the winners were announced. So now I want to make it better!!

    Congrats on the win Sadierose. I lol’ed on the Left 4 Dead mash-up with the burrito Sais or Nunchuriitos held by Chris.

    Congrats Sadierose! Seriously high bar with some awesome entries from some very talented artists!

  9. Thank you so much– those are some strong submissions! …How did I get through?! I cried from super-happiness when I got the e-mail. While I was at the gym.
